"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7 I-O Table: Ecuador"
by Ludena, Carlos and José Elías Durán Lima


Abstract
This document describes the steps behind the construction of Ecuador's Input-Output (I-O) table for the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP). The GTAP Input-Output table for Ecuador is based on the 2001 Supply and Use matrices compiled by the Central Bank of Ecuador. The Central Bank of Ecuador is the only official provider of these data in Ecuador, and is in charge of collecting and processing data on National Accounts.

This document is divided in 4 sections. The next section explains the data, their particular characteristics and its salient economic features. Section 3 describes the process of building the database, outlining some of the assumptions made about the structure of the source data so it can be consistent with GTAP specifications. Section 4 describes briefly the sectoral aggregation and splits. Finally, section 5 describes source data missed in the process of moving to the GTAP specification.
